Kyrgios has always been a divisive figure, never more so than during the past week at WimbledonNick Kyrgios lit up No 1 Court on Saturday night with a four-set victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas which was one of the best but also — even by his standards — most controversial of his career. Kyrgios, 27, tried to have Tsitsipas defaulted during their third-round clash after the No 4 seed hit a ball into the crowd and also at one stage sarcastically exclaimed “nice shot” after an error by his opponent. It led Tsitsipas to call his Australian conqueror “a bully” during his post-match press conference. Both players have both been fined by Wimbledon officials, with Kyrgios receiving a £3,300 punishment for an audible obscenity — he used the word “f*****” during a complaint to the umpire about a line call.

The most unforgettable women in the world wear Revlon, their ads proudly proclaimed. Back then few would argue given the luscious lips, chiselled cheekbones, gloss and gorgeousness of the Cindy Crawfords, Halle Berrys and Linda Evangelistas of the world. These superstars epitomised the glamour and femininity the iconic brand wanted to inspire in ordinary women. And for many years they succeeded – for generations Revlon was a makeup must-have. But it turns out the beauty brand’s financial state is far from flawless.

In the 1980s the comedian Ben Elton had a set imagining “if men got periods”, in which blokes make it the stuff of after-dinner bragging. “I was just strolling out to bat,” Elton intoned in a deep-braying voice, “when would you believe it, my period started!”A few decades on and girls have sort of caught up. The sports our nation loves — cricket, tennis — and the all-white “English flag” football kit worn by the Lionesses at the Euros this month mean there will be more white worn by women in British sports this summer than even the most euphoric tampon advert.

"Kids that are placed on the STMP experience it as an ongoing pattern of police harassment,"Want more Junkee in your life? New South Wales Police are under fire again for a controversial monitoring program that disproportionately affects young First Nations people.

The latest batch of consumer confidence reports for New Zealand shows that Kiwis remain extremely depressed on the back of soaring inflation and interest rates. New Zealand’s poor consumer confidence is understandable. These shocks have sent inflation soaring, which has prompted the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to aggressively hike interest rates. With the next New Zealand election due in late 2023, and Kiwis confronting soaring mortgage costs, plunging house prices, and a potential recession, Jacinda Ardern is staring at near certain electoral defeat. Worse, she can’t do much about it, given the RBNZ holds the interest rate lever.

06:19Leaders from dozens of countries, international organisations and the private sector are set to gather in Switzerland today to hash out a ‘Marshall Plan’ to rebuild war-ravaged Ukraine. “And we will have to free over 2,000 villages and towns in the east and south of Ukraine,” he said. Lingering concerns about widespread corruption in Ukraine mean far-reaching reforms remain in focus and will be a condition for any recovery plan. The cost of the war is estimated at $1tn if it lasts until the end of the year. The International Monetary Fund has estimated Ukraine’s balance of payments gap until June to be roughly €14.3bn ($15bn).

Hello and welcome to our live Leicester City coverage on Monday, July 4, 2022. Pre-season training is in full flow for manager Brendan Rodgers and his City squad, with their first friendly against Notts County coming up this weekend.

Plenty of names continue to be linked, including the highly-rated Charles De Ketelaere, but nobody is through the door yet. Some sales might need to happen first, with Youri Tielemans as well as Caglar Soyuncu heavily linked with moves away.
